Today’s 12 Days of Christmas with a nativity spin is wonderful. Note: while technically the 12 days of Christmas is to be celebrated after Christmas into the new year, this nativity idea makes sense to do the 12 days leading up to Christmas.
I didn’t find a printable that I loved for the scripture tags, so I created my own. You can download them at the links below and print them on card stock (for best results, download the tags to your computer, rather than print from Google Drive).
We are leaving the Nativity pieces so that it tells the scripture story in order:
1. Joseph, 2. Mary, 3. Shepherds, 4. Sheep, 5. Angel, 6. Manger, 7. Shepherd, 8. Wise Man, 9. Star ornaments, 10. Wise Man, 11. Wise Man, 12. Baby Jesus
You may have to make adjustments if you buy a different nativity and don’t have twelve pieces. Candy canes for shepherds or gold coins for wise men, for instance. But keep it simple!
